    My stock stuffing ideas: Water Bottle, lip balm, Whiskey Wedge, necklaces, Bacon Bandages, Compact Umbrella, Swiss Army Knife, Good Luck Stones, etc.

    My recommended read this winter: A Visit From St. Nicholas by Clement C. Moore. This is 1 of my favorite reads all time. It's always fun to read about how Santa Claus comes to life.

  3. If you're putting in tasty treats, I would love to see some buckeyes! My favorite books are anything by Beverly Lewis. She writes wonderful Amish Fiction. Many are series. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I would love to see chocolate in there and maybe some cute warm gloves for winter and other trinkets that I can't think of right at this moment. As for the book I recently got a book called Married for Christmas by Noelle Adams it was a freebie on amazon though I haven't read it yet you may like it.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Author swag (bookmarks/magnet/postcards etc). Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan is a GREAT book which is one of my all time favorites, you should definitely check that book out (EPIC LOVE STORY)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love notepads in my stockings. I am always needing something to write on, make lists, etc.

    I read a few months ago Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and really enjoyed it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. A good Christmas book- The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus This was read to me every Christmas as a young child and now I read it to my own.

    A good Role Playing Game Book- Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition This is on my teenage son's Christmas list. Apparently the Monster Manual is extremely interesting on its own.

    A good history book- Susan Wise Bauer's History of the World series (for adults) OR Story of the World Series (for children) Love both of these series. The author really pulls you into history.

    OR better yet pick up and read, or reread, any of the classics. That is probably my favorite thing to do.

    For stocking gifts how about Opi Nail Polish, Yankee Candle Tarts or small candles, sample size packets of flavored coffee, pretty notepads, popcorn seasoning, Terry's chocolate orange, Bath and Body pocket hand sanitizer... I could go on and on with ideas. Making stockings is one of my favorite parts of Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  8. For the stocking I would say candy, a candle, a card game, a bracelet.

    For the book I would suggest Bright Side by Kim Holden!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Plushies and Bookmarks are great to put in the stockings. Also, makeup or small candies.

    A good book: Grave Mercy or Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

    ReplyDelete
  10. Gift cards are always welcome. A good book- Symbiont by Mira Grant

    ReplyDelete
  11. How about some hot chocolate? Maybe some chocolate goodies like Dove? Just an idea. I know this comes out of your pocket so I don't want to recommend anything too expensive. Have you read Compulsion by Martina Boone yet? It is FABULOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Gift cards are good, Book (Gone Girl)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Chocolate is ALWAYS welcome in my stocking! I also like to give small things like bookmarks and earrings.

    As for a great book, I think my top five for the year (hopefully one of them is new to you) are:
    1. Landline by Rainbow Rowell, good relationship feels (it IS Rainbow) and a great look at marriage.
    2. The Storied Life of AJ Fikry - as a reader and a lover of bookstores, I was insanely charmed even though it has some flaws.
    3. Blue Lily, Lily Blue - No one writes like Maggie Stiefvater and this series is AMAZING.
    4. I'll Give You the Sun - I am not one for flowery language, but this book was so beautifully written and it caught be in every single emotion I have.
    5. (and off the wall choice) The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch - imagine a fantasy character with the wit of Tyrion Lannister planning Ocean's 11 style heists. Combine it with a crazy good friendship and it is Scott Lynch's series.

    Happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Gift cards, sweets, maybe some bookmarks... thanks for the giveaway! As for books, if you like paranormal, you should take a look at A Dance of Light and Darkness by Ryan and Niki Traynor :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Maybe some perfume samples, some nail polish, something sweet as in food, lol, gift cards.....the book would be hard to recommend as it depends on what you like to read. One that I liked was Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (the same author that wrote Gone Girl.)

    ReplyDelete
  27. We always got an avocado in our stockings growing up! I just read Into the Wild, that was a thought provoking read.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward (Lover Awakened is my favorite book of all times, Zsadist is such a sweetheart. <3)
    2. Lords of Deliverance by Larissa Ione (I really enjoyed Reaver, this book has it all, interesting heroes and a beautiful plot), and
    3. Chained by Night also by Larissa Ione (I simply love the writing of this author!).
    4. Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward and
    5. Raw by Belle Aurora, they were so complex and interesting that I read them in a day!
    As you can see, I really can't choose just 1, sorry for that, LOL.
    Thank you for the giveaway and happy holidays! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Candy, hot wheel, and nail polish are great ideas for stocking stuffers. A great book to read is Do you take this Woman by R.M. Johnson.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Notebooks, pens/pencils, bookmarks and the like are always such great presents. Nail polish and headbands, too. Stickers!!! Love stickers. And a great book to read this winter? Sunset Rising by S. M. McEarchern. I was given it to R2R and usually I don't like them, but this one was actually really good, like I really really loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Chocolate is always a good idea! Also some book themed items like a mug or coasters would be a fun idea.

    One book I recommend is Winterspell by Claire Legrand because is a retelling of the Nutcracker!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like to read romances this time of year! I would add something from Robyn Carr ( she has a few good anthologies at the Christmas time--I know she has That Holiday Feeling out , its a good one! Also I would add gum, cosmetics, gift cards to stockings!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Dark chocolate and Muppet items are always good! I'd recommend Jamie Fessenden's THE CHRISTMAS WAGER--it's a wonderful m/m Regency, with really good storytelling and characters (bonus: there's even a child who's not an annoying urchin)!

    Trix, vitajex(at)Aol(Dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hmm, chocolates go great with books, but then so does hot tea. Either would be great in the stocking. As for a good book to read, how about "Moriarty" by Anthony Horowitz. It's a Sherlock Holmes/Moriarty story that takes place after Reichenbach Falls and promises to be a really riveting read.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lip balms, candles and chocolates are all good.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like earrings and socks in my stocking.

    I like earrings, necklaces, gift cards of all kinds!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's very generous, thank you! :-)
    To me, a card with a funny anecdote and a few tempting sweets is the perfect surprise in a stocking.
    As of books, if you like dystopians I'd recommend The Book of Ivy, by Amy Engel, it's good and clever, romantic too, but it makes you think about society and yourself. It's a wonderful read :-)
    Happy holidays.

    ReplyDelete

    I don't know, maybe some bookish or christmas stuff.. or some gift cards, or jewels, or 2015 calendar!! XD

    ReplyDelete
  41. I recommend the Tiger Saga by Colleen Houck.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Chocolate is good, also giftcards, and earrings or barrettes (if appropriate). I recommend the Zombie Apocalypse trilogy by Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire) Feed/Deadline/Blackout which is a great combination of political thriller, ZA and media snarkiness!

    ReplyDelete
  44. small gift cards for coffee or snacks is always great

    ReplyDelete
  45. Chocolate, nail polish and lipsticks are always my answer for stocking stuffers! I love Stephen King's Dark Tower series, so if that's your kind of thing and you want a huge series to read, that's the one!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Face moisturizer or a bath bomb would make great stocking stuffers. As far as what to read, I'm currently reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and it's really good. diesel_had_my_baby@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. Children's books would be great to put in there....that way the kids can give mom a moment of peace to read her own book :) I enjoy Fantasy books so my suggestion is The Belgariad by David Eddings. It is a terrific book that takes you into a magical world

    ReplyDelete
  48. I havent had time to read lately but I think some hot chocolate and a face mask would be good additions.

  52. My idea of great stocking stuffers are jelly beans, candles, wine stops, gloves, fridge magnets, funny socks and shot glasses. A great winter read would be "The Way of the Owl: Succeeding with Integrity in a Conflicted World” by Frank Rivers“. I really like this book because it touches all areas of our lives.

    Happy holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm reading The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith right now and I highly recommend it if you like mysteries. It's intelligent, really masterfully plotted and written, and I find the main characters really likable. In terms of what to put in a stocking, I love all types of chocolate, especially Hershey's and Green and Black's.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would love to see travel size hand lotion. The book I recommend is Stones from the River. It's a great book that follows a young German girls life from World War I all the way through World War II. It's a great read.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like nice pens and vegan chocolate (and other vegan treats) in my stocking! As for a book, I just finished reading Rae Carlson's Girl of Fire and Thorns series. It is a great read anytime.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Since im a goth, i'd love to find something gothy in my stocking :3 And, I would reccomend you to read ''Im not afraid'' by Niccolo Amanitti :D Awesome book,love it!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Some items that I think would be great in a stocking are;

    - An oversized mug (for either coffee or soup)
    - A pearl earring and necklace set
    - Ghirardelli chocolates
    - miniature anything- example- condiments, summer sausages, liqueur bottles, cheeses

    A great read for me this winter would be the DaVinci Code! It is such an interesting book ( I've read it 4 times)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I would put Snickers and Reese's candy in the stocking! And a book I recommend right now is called Triggered: A Memoir of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I'm reading it because I have OCD and it's really helping me come to terms with my experiences.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Book Swag would be great, like bookmarks and book magnets. Also, gift cards and lipbalms are handy to have.

    As for book recommendations, I have been reading the *Hana-Kimi* manga series and the *Kimi ni Todoke* manga series and the *Shugo Chara!* manga series. If you like shoujo, you would definitely like those 3 series.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Gift cards, candy, and fuzzy socks are what we find in our stockings sometimes. I really like Mary Higgins Clark and this one goes with the season Silent Night.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My stocking stuffer ideas: body wash/spray/lotion, barettes, candy, earrings, slippers, and lip gloss. My book recommendation is Damocles by S.G. Redling, just because it was so sweet and charming and made me smile!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Gift cards are always good for stocking stuffers. I also get lip balm, small body sprays and lotions for stocking stuffers. I would like to read Gone Girl this winter because everyone has recommended it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I always put in chocolate coins and a toothbrush. I recently read "Make the Bread, Buy the Butter." I really liked it!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Definitely some chocolate, like Ferrero Rocher or Lindt! Mmmm. And I recommend Gone Girl. It's such a great book...real page-turner, clever, can't put it down!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would like to see some craft supplies...and, The Bible is always a good thing to read!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I always like to find something only that person would understand would be from me to them. Like only I would give that to them. Even if it's just something.50 cents, it'll make their day and they might keep that gift for 50 years and it'll be a treasured item. *shrugs* I was asked earlier today about the best or most treasured book I'd ever gotten, and I thought about it for a while. It was the Mists of Avalon. I love that book. So I'll suggest it to you.
